Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – November 21, 2016
Family situation changed and I had to leave the job. Otherwise, Raytheon was an excellent company. The 9/80 schedule makes for an awesome work life balance. Management was great and encouraged training and growth.
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – November 18, 2016
IIS develops very complex systems. There is a tremendous amount of domain knowledge within the company. The main fault with the company is that these large unwieldy programs are being strangulated with an ill fitting agile/scrum management implementation (not to be confused with an actual engineering methodology).
Great people and co-workers
There is no work-life balance, The agile/scrum management implementation fosters a culture of failure, and artificial emergency.
Information Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Tewksbury, MA – November 13, 2016
Started as an expeditor, worked my way up to Program Manager. Finished my degree in Computer Science while working here. Eventually wound up in the IT department until I left to pursue working for myself.
I train soldiers how to maintain unmanned aircraft. Its a fun job that i look forward to every morning. The people i work with are primarily veterans, so the work environment is exactly what i was hoping for in a job outside the military.
Compensation and Benefits is the best thing about employment here.
Media Specialist (Former Employee) – Goleta, CA – October 31, 2016
Routine/repetition in daily tasks most of the time. Was given the opportunity to be cross trained in a publications department. My former immediate manager valued employee opinions whereas current management doesn't appear to care. Mixed, some were back stabbers to benefit themselves. The hardest part of the job was trying to work past the negatives.
Compensation, Benefits and employee discount program
Senior Consultant (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – October 31, 2016
This is a very typical defense industry environment. There is a lot of emphasis on getting the job done well and on time. Management was very well versed in the defense area and worked very hard to accomplish its mission. The work environment was a bit crowded with tight seating arrangements. Most of the people were nice and friendly.
